Good Lexus Breakers Yard


Recommended Posts

Fellow owners,

Be very careful, there is a thread going on this site about an Ebay seller breaking Lexus cars, where others have paid for defective or worn out items, in some cases they have paid but nothing ever arrived!

I got caught once many years ago and bought a climate control unit for a MK2 LS400, due to the usual problem of the screen blackening, I was assurred it was perfect, when it arrived it was worse than useless! So I used it to practice on, learning how to replace Mk2 LCD screens before attempting the job in my own unit.

My advice is to scrutinise sellers feedback ratings before dealing, or place a question here, enlisting the experiences of other owners who may have already dealt with them, before parting with what could be a serious amount of cash.

Good hunting,

Chris Vince

I'm not affiliated with the EBay seller in anyway, merely came accross that LS400 the other night in my usual slog through EBAY.....

I'm sure Mat is a big boy and won't just part with his cash without doing a bit of checking..........

Do you know this seller and had a bad incounter? ......... or are you on about a past transaction that you had with a different person?

Hi Noel,

No inference intended at all connecting you with the Ebay item, I'm sure it wasn't this seller I dealt with, it was in my early days of Lexus ownership.

Being horrified at the price of a Lexus climate control unit, I filled in one of the multitude of online spare part request forms, and found a breaker that had one, my problems started when they sacked the bloke I had dealt with (or so they said) and then denied that he would have confirmed it was a servicable part.

I do clearly recall a thread running here, where another owners-club member had had a bad experience through ebay, several others joined in recounting similar unsatisfactory deals.

The point I was trying to make, is that it is all too easy to dispense with our normal checks when we come across, or are offerred something we think is a bargain!

Best regards,

Chris Vince

If it's the 1990 Lexus being broken on ebay the guy's in Leicester and I bought the plastic engine under cover off him as mine was damaged for £20.00 after gunking it looked like new.

So he was ok with me and seemed genuine.
